The Lightning Thief: This is the first installment of Rick Riordan’s series, the Percy Jackson and the Olympians which as released on 1st July 2005.

Percy returns home from his school for summer holidays. Her mother, Sally Jackson, decides to take him to Montauk to spend some time. However, as they were on their way, their trip was cut short by sequential incidents including a major attack by a minotaur. This finds Percy entrapped in a training camp half-blood. He later realizes residents of the camp are demigods, just like him. Additionally, he discovers that he is a son of a demigod of Poseidon. Poseidon was a Greek god believed to have control over the sea, earthquakes, and father of all horses. Percy also gets to know that his best friend, Grover, is a satyr. The Greek gods are accusing him as the one who stole Zeus’ lightning bolt. This was the most powerful weapon at that times.

Percy believes Hades are the real thieves who stole the bolt. Therefore, to free themselves, they must retrieve this weapon. The escapade definitely won’t be a walkthrough. Accompanied by Grover and Annabeth, the daughter of Athena, they set out for the search. Fast-forward, they underwent a lot of challenges in their search that culminated in finding the real thief, Luke Castellan.
